Drift While You're Sleeping

I've seen the day go by
And drag you down
Pushed and pulled 'round
Roped and bound

You can drift while you're sleeping
I'm here with you
You can drift while you're dreaming
And love will carry us through

Earthbound we drag on
Our wars to wage
The moments lag on
So turn the page

You can drift while you're sleeping
It will all feel new
You can drift while you're dreaming
And love will carry us through

Oh
Down the stream you ride
Oh
Down the stream you ride
Oh

We are wind, we are wind and you can't hold on
Hold on to anything you see and it's gone
Gone in a heartbeat, fleeting it's gone
We are wind, we are wind
We crumble into nothing
We are wind

Two hearts meet folded together
For one brief moment everything fits
The sun feels warm and that heat there is truth
But this life is a stage set

The same sun rose on everyone
Whoever lived or died in that same sunset

So I guess that the good times turned out to be
Just a temporary reprieve from gravity
A nice trip over the falls in a barrel with me
We'll do it again when we meet on the other side

So Charon in your filthy cloak
I'll take my friend on this ferry ride
You can still have your obul
But we don't need a guide so step aside

And that thin thin bubble I know what it is
I see it, I see it
It's always been there
It's stronger than words
It's stronger than time
It's the line drawn between us

It's love, it's love
It always was
And it is and it always will be love
And it is and it was and it will be love
It is and it always will be love

It's love, it's love
It always was
And it is and it always will be love

And we move through stormy weather
We know that our days are few
And we dream and we struggle together
And love will carry us through
And love will carry us

We move through stormy weather
We know that our days are few
We dream and we struggle together
And love will carry us through

We move (We move) through stormy weather (Through stormy weather)
We know (We know, we know) that our days are few (That our days are few, yeah)
We dream (We dream) and we struggle together (And we struggle together)
And love (But love, but love) will carry us through (Will carry us through)

We move through stormy weather
We know that our days are few
We dream and we struggle together
And love will carry us through
Repeat (x 5)

And love will carry us through
